    President Joe Biden on Wednesday ridiculed threats made by right-wing lawmakers that he will be impeached if the Republican Party gains a majority in the United States House of Representatives once all of the votes from the midterm elections are counted. Biden had just finished giving a speech about the Democratic Party's historically strong performance on a night that typically proves disastrous for the incumbent government when he was asked by a reporter to comment on the GOP's taunts – which include launching investigations into Biden's son, Hunter. “Lots of luck in your senior year, as my coach used to say,” Biden said of the conservatives' vendetta.

    Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker speaks during a "Unite Georgia Bus Tour," on Sept. 27, 2022.Jason Getz/Zuma Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker—who supports forcing women to carry pregnancies to term with no exceptions, even if doing so could lead to death—once asked a woman he impregnated to get an abortion, and then paid for the procedure. Walker vowed that evening that he would sue the outlet the next morning, but hasn’t yet. The Beast followed up its scoop with more details—the woman who provided a copy of the $700 check, the receipt for the procedure, and a get-well-soon card allegedly signed by Walker, also went on to have a child with him. Well, okay. Reaction from Georgia Republicans has spanned an illuminating range. The Georgia-based conservative commentator Erick Erickson said at first that it was old news. A Republican strategist granted anonymity by Politico so that they could speak like a complete knob, clarified that “it’s...

    This column is about asking a question, not about settling one. So hitch your chair on up and chime in: What does it take to be an Angeleno? It’s more than your address, but what else? There’s no test to pass, no license to qualify for. So how do you know when you are one? Does it happen gradually? Or all at once, in a coup de foudre, a lightning strike of, “Hey, this is my town!”? Me, I don’t put a stopwatch on anyone. I always say there are two sorts of Angelenos: the ones lucky enough to be born here, and those smart enough to move here. Living here a few weeks is enough to make some people into authentic Angelenos; others can be born here but remain strangers to their hometown. Mona Holmes believes that too. She is a reporter for EaterLA and grew up in Altadena and Pasadena, with a vision of L.A. that, like her palate, is ecumenical. “To be a good community member you have to contribute to it and not be a taker....
    New York (CNNBusiness)Savvy consumers have found a way around sky-high inflation to keep buying more than just necessities.They're doing it by shopping for their closets, homes, outdoor spaces, home offices and workout areas not from retailers but from each other.Large chains such as Walmart (WMT), Target (TGT), and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY)are struggling with an oversupply of merchandise and lack of demand for discretionary items like furniture, electronics, home decor and clothing.But those are exactly the categories that are in hot demand in the secondhand marketplace, according to the fourth annual industry report from OfferUp, a leading online resale marketplace."While recommerce has become popular in culture with its use for clothing resale, our research found that 76% of items bought and sold pre-owned are not apparel and instead fall into the categories of electronics, furniture, home goods, home improvement, sporting goods, outdoor equipment and auto parts," OfferUp CEO Todd Dunlap, said in the report.Read MoreKohls has an inventory mess on its handsDemand for secondhand clothing and other items was already strong heading into the pandemic, with environmentally and budget-conscious...

    A Massachusetts woman recently gave birth to two sets of identical twins, a 1-in-10-million phenomenon.  Ashley Ness, age 35, of Taunton, is recovering after doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital delivered the four babies via C-section just before 4 a.m. on Thursday, July 28, she told PEOPLE.  While she wasn't due until October, doctors decided to move forward with the delivery 12 weeks early for Ness' and the babies' safety.  Dr. Ahmet Baschat, director of the Center for Fetal Therapy and professor at John Hopkins medical school, told PEOPLE he's been an OBGYN for 30 years and has never seen this happen before. "If she were playing the lottery, if she's this lucky, she would be very rich," he said.  Doctors admitted Ness to the hospital at the beginning of July to monitor her because of the risks to her health and the babies. A spokesperson for the hospital told the magazine that the mom and her two boys and two girls are doing well. Now, Ness' friends and family recently started a GoFundMe to help her cover the costs of caring for...

    SAVING money on a home project by doing it yourself is a noble goal, but one small mistake can leave you seriously injured. One electrician shared the DIY errors that even savvy homeowners make. 1Common DIY mistakes can result in fire or electrocution, electricians warnCredit: Getty Plenty of electrical projects are totally safe to DIY, but these common errors can lead to horrific outcomes, from fires to lethal electrocution. According to a survey by Electrical Direct, electricians said the number-one most dangerous mistake a homeowner can make is leaving plastic-sheathed cables unprotected.  John McCallister, an electrical expert at MyJobQuote, said that homeowners must run the cords through a conduit if they want to avoid a worst-case scenario. "Leaving plastic-sheathed cables unprotected exposes them to snagging and cuts, which could lead to fires or lethal shocks," McCallister said. "Running them through a conduit minimizes this risk."

    To some, it defies common sense. California is once again in the middle of a punishing drought with state leaders telling people to take shorter showers and do fewer loads of laundry to conserve water. Yet at the same time, many of the same elected officials, pledging to solve the housing crisis, are pushing for the construction of millions of new homes. “It’s the first question I’d always get,” said Jeffrey Kightlinger, who until last year ran the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the agency that delivers the water ultimately used by half the state’s population. “How in the world are you approving new housing when we’re running out of water?” The answer, according to Kightlinger and other experts, is that there’s plenty of water available for new Californians if the 60-year trend of residents using less continues and accelerates into the future. Case in point: Angelenos use 44% less water per person annually than they did four decades ago, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Some of the changes that have freed up...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Kerr’s angry, emotional speech in the wake of the shooting at Robb Elementary School spread quickly across social media and national news. Kerr says many people have reached out to him asking what they can do to help. “I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me, most asking what they can do. And I think that’s a really good question,” Kerr said. In his impassioned statement before Game 4 of the Western Conference finals against the Mavericks, Kerr said he was “fed up” after 18-year-old gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, about 350 miles south of Dallas. “When are we going to do something?” Kerr said, raising his voice and on the verge of tears. “I’m tired. I’m so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there.” Kerr, whose father was assassinated in Beirut in 1984, has been vocal in his outrage over gun violence and advocated for gun safety measures. “You know, for whatever reason, it’s a political issue, but it’s...

    VICTORY, Vt. (AP) — For the 70-or-so people who live in the remote Vermont community of Victory, Town Clerk Tracey Martel says she’s regularly frustrated watching a spinning circle on her computer while she tries to complete even the most basic municipal chores online. “Fast internet would be really good,” said Martel, whose community was one of the last in Vermont to receive electricity almost 60 years ago. The DSL service she has now works for basic internet, but it can be spotty and it doesn’t allow users to access all the benefits of the interconnected world. About 5 miles (8 kilometers) away as the bird flies in the neighboring community along Miles Pond in the town of Concord, a new fiber optic line is beginning to bring truly high-speed internet to residents of the remote area known as the Northeast Kingdom. “I’m looking forward to high-speed internet, streaming TV,” said Concord resident John Gilchrist, as a crew ran fiber optic cable to his home earlier this year.

    California’s universal indoor mask mandate expired at midnight, but that doesn’t mean you can ditch your mask. Even if you’re up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations, there are still lots of places in the Golden State where you’ll need to cover your nose and mouth. Almost everyone — vaccinated or not — will still have to wear a mask when: In a hospital, medical clinic, dialysis center, dentist’s office or any other place where healthcare is provided. In nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. While taking public transportation. This includes Ubers, Lyfts and taxis in addition to buses and subways. Planes and ferries count too. In transportation hubs such as airports, train stations, marinas and bus terminals. When indoors at a K-12 school or child-care center. In homeless shelters. In correctional facilities, including jails, prisons and other detention centers. In emergency shelters established for those displaced by wildfires and other disasters. In cooling and heating centers set up during bouts of extreme heat or extreme cold. If you’re unvaccinated, California also requires masks when you’re: ...
    Dr. Houman Hemmati, a Ph.D. research scientist, explained how the latest variant of COVID-19 could actually bring the end of the pandemic sooner. On "Fox & Friends First," he said that the omicron variant, based on the few reports from South Africa, could be highly infectious and cause little disease, meaning that many people around the globe could be exposed and develop antibodies that would provide protection from future variants.  TUCKER CARLSON: JOE BIDEN'S HANDLE ON CORONAVIRUS ‘GREATEST PUBLIC POLICY FAILURE OF ALL TIME’ DR. HEMMATI: There is a lot of data that remains to be seen. There's always a chance that this is much more infectious, much more deadly than what we have heard about so far. So far, we have just a trickle of reports coming out of South Africa. But hypothetically, if this doesn't cause significant disease or any real major disease whatsoever and happens to, on the flip side, to be highly infectious such that everybody gets it – imagine lots and lots of people, including currently vaccinated people get it and it's impossible to avoid. ...
    Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial began long before he ever set foot in court. Rittenhouse was arguably pronounced guilty in the court of public opinion by corporate media, Democrat politicians and activists, and Hollywood celebrities. Even during and after the trial, when the full story became widely and publicly apparent, a sort of collusion took place to mystify the truth. Now acquitted of all charges, including several homicide charges, 18-year-old Rittenhouse has come to another crossroads: Will he spend more time in court to hold accountable the people and companies who defamed him? If courts were to conclude that Rittenhouse is what is called a “limited public figure,” Rittenhouse will have to prove that these companies and individuals acted with “actual malice” — that is, with reckless disregard for the truth. For some false allegations, he would have to show how they damaged his reputation. But specific claims where he was wrongly accused of a felony — factual errors — would no doubt damage his reputation. Since many high profile people voiced their thoughts before, during, and after the trial, it would be an extremely long article to list everyone who ever defamed...
    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Despite a delayed season opening date, the Steamboat Ski Resort is ready to expand. Some projects are already underway.

    Special presidential envoy for climate John Kerry said Thursday on MSNBC’s ‘MTP Daily” that lots of Republicans now know climate change “is not some made-up political thing.” When asked if a Republican president can reverse the Democrats climate actions, Kerry said, “Because of those trillions of dollars of commitment, because Ford and GM have made the decision that by 2035 they’re not going to produce internal combustion cars, they’re only going to do electric, those kinds of decisions can’t be undone by an American politician. Those decisions are so locked in, three years from now, three-and-a-half years, if there were to be the election of somebody from the other party, let me tell you something, their supporters are going to be as committed to this as anybody. Else.” Kerry added, “I believe lots of Republicans around the country understand what’s happening. Ask farmers in Iowa and Minnesota. Ask people who have been flooded out or heated out. Look at the number of people that died in Texas during the winter. You know, this is not some made-up political thing. This...
    Alyssa Milano has opened up about having flashbacks of being sexually assaulted when she gave birth for the first time, saying it 'triggered all of these memories.'   The actress, who shares a son Milo, ten, and daughter Elizabella, seven, with her husband David Bugliari, reflected on her childbirth experience during her appearance on this week's episode of People's new podcast 'Me Becoming Mom.' 'I remembered at one point [during childbirth] really not enjoying the fact that lots of people had access to my vagina,' Milano, 48, told host Zoë Ruderman.  'And thinking to myself, "Why does— I don't like this.

    by Jack J. Barry, University of Florida; Ann Christiano, University of Florida, and Annie Neimand, University of Florida Are workplace vaccine mandates prompting some employees to quit rather than get a shot? A hospital in Lowville, New York, for example, had to shut down its maternity ward when dozens of staffers left their jobs rather than get vaccinated. At least 125 employees at Indiana University Health resigned after refusing to take the vaccine. And several surveys have shown that as many as half of unvaccinated workers insist they would leave their jobs if forced to get the shot, which has raised alarms among some that more mandates could lead to an exodus of workers in many industries. But how many will actually follow through? Strong wordsIn June 2021, we conducted a nationwide survey, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, that gave us a sample of 1,036 people who mirrored the diverse makeup of the U.S. We plan to publish the survey in October. We asked respondents to tell us what they would do if “vaccines were required" by...
    With the recall election less than two weeks away, the mail ballot returns so far show that more than twice as many Democrats have voted than Republicans and that liberal areas of the state such as the Bay Area have the highest rates of return, according to state officials and political data researchers. The early numbers provide good news for Gov. Gavin Newsom. But they also show his weaknesses and what his campaign must do between now and election day on Sept. 14 — turn out young and Latino voters — key parts of the coalition he needs to stay in office but notoriously difficult populations to mobilize in nonpresidential elections. “If I am the Newsom campaign, I have to feel good about these numbers, but I think it’s a big mistake for them to be overly optimistic,” said Paul Mitchell, vice president of Political Data Inc. “The remaining task ahead has to look steep — you’re starting to look at voters who are really challenging to turn out…. And if this represents Republicans holding onto their ballots and...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said Monday on MSNBC that he was not concerned if teachers balk at his mandatory vaccine mandate for all public school employees because they had “lots of substitute teachers.” De Blasio said, “I was a public school parent with my kids. I know for parents, it’s all about the health and safety of kids. We need our kids back in the classroom 100%. We need to leave the era of remote behind us. This is the right thing to do to ensure a safe environment. So now our parents will know, and all our employees will know that every single employee in there has been vaccinated, and that’s how we keep this school system safe, and we bring our kids back.” Guest anchor Aaron Gilchrist said, “Can you tell us why you decided to issue this mandate with no exceptions? There are other places that said vaccine or testing. You said no exceptions to getting vaccinated. What does that mean for people who may have religious objections or medical exceptions?” De Blasio...
    One-in-five Americans say they have lost friendships over disagreements on the Chinese coronavirus, a daily YouGov survey updated Friday found. The daily question surveyed 5,219 U.S. adults on August 5 and asked, “Have you lost any friendships because of differences in opinion related to the COVID-19 pandemic?” Twenty percent of respondents said they have, 68 percent said they have not, and 11 percent indicated they remain unsure. When broken down by party lines, nearly one-quarter of Democrats, 24 percent, said they have lost friendships, compared to 15 percent of Republicans. The survey comes as politicians begin to alter their rhetoric toward unvaccinated Americans, the majority of whom, surveys suggest, do not plan to get the jab. This week, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) scolded unvaccinated Marylanders, accusing them of “willfully” putting others in danger. He also labeled them as a threat to freedoms in the state. “I don’t care what misinformation or conspiracy theories that you have heard,” he said, wholly dismissing their concerns. “The plain and simple fact is that these vaccines are working.” “Those of you who refuse...

    I was just relaxing, sitting on the couch watching “Friends,” but I knew something was wrong. My heartbeat was fast and abnormal. I started wheezing and felt breathless. I checked my oxygen and heartbeat and both were unusual — 90% and 150 beats per minute — so on what had been a normal Thursday evening, Oct. 28, 2020, I called my family. Then I called 911. The ambulance tech said, “Oh, honey, you’re just having an anxiety attack.” I might have been anxious, but I knew there was something deeper going on. And I had dealt with skepticism before. A week earlier, and five months before that, doctors had told me I was too emotional. I had overcome a case of COVID-19 in spring, and two doctors said there was no way I was still experiencing symptoms of the disease. Across from my room at a Los Angeles hospital, patients were on ventilators. Tests showed that my heartbeat was indeed irregular and my oxygen low. My coronavirus test came back negative. The doctor thought I might be...
    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Americans enjoying newfound liberty are expected to travel and gather for cookouts, fireworks, concerts and beach outings over the Fourth of July weekend in numbers not seen since pre-pandemic days. Yet lingering restrictions, worker shortages and significant numbers of unvaccinated people mean some may not be as free as they would like to be. READ MORE: List: Most Northern California Fourth Of July Fireworks Celebrations Return After COVID-19 And there are fears that the mixing of large numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans at a time when the highly contagious delta variant is spreading rapidly could undo some of the progress made against the scourge. Nashville is expecting as many as 400,000 people to stream into the city for its July Fourth celebration featuring country star Brad Paisley. In Massachusetts, the Boston Pops’ Independence Day concert is back, but the show that usually draws hundreds of thousands to the Charles River esplanade in Boston will be held 100 miles away at the Tanglewood music center. Beaches and lakefronts are expected to be packed as well. In...
     Netflix is coming out with a new dating show … and it may be the strangest one yet. Sexy Beasts — a dating show that can really only be described as Love is Blind meets The Masked Singer — is meant to help contestants find love based solely on personality, as everyone will be dating in full prosthetic makeup. The series’ trailer displayed a myriad of sexy beasts, including a panda, scarecrow, and several insects and sea creatures, who are all set to compete for each other’s love.

    Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa — As word spread that there were diamonds to be found beneath the soil in a tiny, rural village in South Africa's Kwa-Zulu Natal region, thousands of people descended with pick-axes in hand. Many people could still be found over the weekend, digging for a fortune they believed could fundamentally change their lives. For a few days, people could dream.  "I'll just become rich, and I'll take my family for holidays," said one man. "I'll spend it in clubs. I'm gonna buy cars," said some younger fortune hunters.  For a week they toiled with shovels and pick-axes, often slumping into an exhausted sleep right at the site.  Stone find in South Africa turns diamond rush... 02:10 For many, it wasn't just the allure of luxury, it was desperation.  Life was hard enough for brick-layer Hlengani Maphumulo before the coronavirus pandemic.

    The first piece of trash Josey Peters found on the beach was a flattened paper cup. He bent down, as he would hundreds of times in the next two hours, and tossed the cup into a big black garbage bag slung over his shoulder. Just south of the Santa Monica Pier, where the Ferris wheel was spinning and the roller coaster carried passengers into a hazy sky, he came upon dozens of white, BB-sized Styrofoam beads scattered on wet sand. “Dude, this is a tragedy,” said Peters, a one-time rock ‘n’ roll guitarist, frizzy hair exploding out from under his hat. “These cheap boogie boards break apart with one day’s use.” Summer arrived early in Los Angeles, with temperatures topping 100 degrees in some areas on Tuesday. So people traded asphalt for surf and sand. Even at 6 p.m., thousands of people still lounged and frolicked on Santa Monica’s main beach. L.A.’s summer anthem of squawking gulls and shrieking children rose above the rhythm of crashing waves and floated on the evening breeze. The 55-year-old Peters, on a mission since...
    RELATIONSHIPS can have their ups and downs, but have you ever had a partner gaslight you into thinking you’re mad and imaging things? Nit-picking and criticising you for things you hadn’t even thought about yourself, or even yelling at you but then giving the “silent treatment”? 4Dr Ramani highlights the warning signs that you could be dating a narcissistCredit: DoctorRamani/Youtube Well, you could be dating a narcissist. Dr Ramani Durvasula, a professor of psychology at California State University, Los Angeles, dedicates her channel to understanding the workings of our psyche. She claims that there are seven different types of narcissist to watch out for – and they could be anywhere. Dr Ramani told The Telegraph: “The qualities of narcissism – lack of empathy, entitlement, superficiality, arrogance, rage, incapacity for deep and connected intimacy since they view relationships largely through a lens of personal gain – really aren’t a good set-up for a long-term, consistent and loving relationship.” 4Gaslighting, showing off and contemptuous comments could be red flagsCredit: Getty Her channel attempts to pick apart our pre-conceived ideas about narcissism –...
    A ton of people working from home over the past year really cut loose. Forbes compiled a ton of data from different studies to examine how working from home has impacted people, and it turns out the answer is pretty simple. People have become gigantic degenerates. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Forbes wrote the following in part about the habits of people working from home: After conducting research into the activities of the self-quarantined to determine if they were diligently working hard at home or engaged in extracurricular activities. The results were that Americans drank heavily, smoked copious amounts of weed, played video games, ate lots of junk food and watched television, Netflix and porn more than ever before. This is honestly pathetic. If you went from being a normal person with a solid routine to just smoking weed, drinking all the time, playing video games and bingeing online content, then you’re just a sad person. As I’ve said before, my routine literally didn’t change at all once people started working from home. I...
    MILLIONS of adults are confused about ingredients in everyday foods – with 47 per cent unaware that eggs are used in chocolate mousse. A study of 2,000 Brits revealed one in five feel they have a lack of knowledge about what’s actually in many pre-packaged foods. 1Millions of adults are confused about ingredients in everyday foods (Stock image)Credit: Getty Just 15 per cent knew wine contains gelatine while one in 20 had no idea scotch eggs are made from meat. And 43 per cent were unaware milk is a key ingredient in quiche. It also emerged six in 10 think the packaging information on food items is often ‘confusing’. A spokesman for British Lion Eggs, which commissioned the study, said: “There is clearly a lot of confusion around what ingredients are in which foods. “Retailers have a duty to their customers to make the ingredients, and their provenance, clear on pack. “Of course, this is never more important than for people who have allergies, but lots of people also want to see more British ingredients, particularly when it comes to...
    Being well hydrated matters to our health, but a combination of factors — including a diet of processed food, advancing age, the pills we take and simply not moving enough — can leave us in a state of mild dehydration, according to a new book.  But as the two authors (a doctor and an anthropologist who has studied indigenous tribes from desert regions) explain here, the solution isn’t simply just to drink gallons of water...  Most of us live in a constant state of mild dehydration. You might spot the clues in the form of afternoon fatigue, a foggy head, chapped lips, dry eyes, bad breath, headaches, urinary tract infections or constipation. But dehydration can have more far-reaching effects, including reduced immunity and joint pain.  Research has also linked it to acid reflux, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Dehydration can have more far-reaching effects, including reduced immunity and joint pain Water is essential for our bodies. We need it to take valuable chemicals, minerals, nutrients and oxygen into our cells. It also helps maintain our body temperature...
    By Anna Bahney | CNN Business When Mark Jenkins and Lori Crowell rang in 2020, they had no idea they’d be moving to another state before the end of the year. But then the pandemic hit and so much changed. “We thought about leaving Seattle the past couple years, but we weren’t ready,” said Jenkins. But when the pandemic made remote work more of a reality for him and they realized they could live anywhere, they packed up and moved to Idaho. “The weather is a big improvement. The traffic is better. It is very welcoming. People are strangely friendly.” Millions of Americans ended 2020 living at a different address than where they started the year. By October, 8.93 million people had moved since the pandemic began in March, according to an analysis of United States Postal Service change of address requests by the National Association of Realtors. That’s an increase of nearly 94,000 from the same period the year before. Where were all these people moving to — and from? Contracts from moving van companies Atlas Van Lines and...
    A woman who was given a wedding registry filled with expensive gift suggestions has sparked a debate about giving presents to financially stable newlyweds.  Posting anonymously on Reddit, the American woman explained she's been invited to the wedding of a friend who she hasn't spoken to in 15 years, and each item on his registry costs over $400. She said couples who already have a home full of nice things shouldn't ecpect gifts, because people travelling to attend their ceremony is enough of a present.

    One of the longest-running mysteries in the 'Zodiac Killer' saga has finally been solved after an international code-breaking team cracked the notorious '340 Cipher' sent to the San Francisco Chronicle 51 years ago.  The letter has been puzzling authorities and amateur sleuths since it arrived at the newspaper's officer in November 1969, four years after the killer started terrorizing the Bay Area, killing at least five people.  Half a century later three private citizen code-breakers from the United States, Australia and Belgium finally decoded a taunting message which reads: 'I hope you are having lots of fun in trying to catch me...
